Subject: The World of Tomorrow You Dreamed About Yesterday
Newsreel clip showing the construction of buildings for the Brussels Worlds Fair, the first worlds fair of the atomic age. It includes the construction of a diorama showing the Highways of the Future, but its just not as much fun as the 1939 World of Tomorrow, darn it. Perhaps tomorrow had become today by that time.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ***.
